Default Ramcat in a Tightspot

I am wanting to give the Ramcat a try, but I have heard of some folks having trouble with them in their quiver. Are any of you guys shooting these using a Tightspot? I am not interested in shooting a head I can't carry in my tightspot.

I can fit 3 125gr 1.5in. in mine but I have to put them in a way that the blades don't touch.
I tried to put more but it gets cluttered and the blades make contact with each other.

it's a Sat a.m. during prime hunting (snow and rut)

most TBH'ers are at the camp and/or in the woods hunting Bambi's dad

you'll probably get more response in a few days

You are probably right! I was hoping some poor soul had to work like myself! We just finished the last pack of your chili by the way, good stuff!!

They work you just have to be careful when putting them in and taking them out

No help on the tight spot but I couldn't get them to fit in a standard quiver very easy. Try the new ramcat savage. It's a expandable. I've been having excellent luck with it this year.

This. I have a five arrow tight spot but only carry three with ram at heads. Also have to be careful with blades contacting the sides. It works, but itís not ideal.

I can only put two in my quiver with broad heads on, put an extra head in my bag and an empty arrow in the quiver!!! I could probably do three but it's a pain and didn't feeling like messing with it!!

I have a Mathews t5 quiver, and could only fit 3 very carefully. Even then I ended up somehow getting 1 ram cat with a bent blade.

EW Bateman makes an 8 arrow quiver that would easily fit 5 or 6 of the 125’s in. I will tell you when I get back home tomorrow.

Yeah I saw that. I have a new Tightspot that I am really liking. Not really wanting to swap quivers just to carry a head.
